© Leanne Boulton, All Rights Reserved Posed street portrait taken for my 100 Strangers project in Glasgow, Scotland. This picture is #40 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page I captured a candid shot of Aimee taking a smoking break from her busy working day and following a positive reaction decided to ask her if she would like a street portrait for my strangers project. Aimee has been in Glasgow for some time, originally from across the Irish Sea, and is working as a business analyst - I think. I was drugged up to the eyeballs on painkillers as usual and this was captured before I had taken my first strong coffee to counter their drowsy effects - my memory of what she told me is quite fuzzy and I rushed the shot a little. I took a few shots, including some not in the direct sunlight, but this was the only one that really came out. Such a shame as she is obviously squinting against the light. Lesson learned - take more time and don't rush! Thanks to Aimee for taking the time during her brief smoking break and for being genuinely interested in street photography and social documentary. I hope she likes the resulting shot and I wish that I could have done her more justice with some more flattering lighting. The beauty of photography and the strangers project is, aside from meeting interesting people, the act of learning with each and every encounter.
